    1796 $1 Small Date, Large Letters XF45 PCGS. B-4, BB-61, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. The curl at the top of the forehead appears as two arcs, connected only at their tops. David Bowers, in Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the United States, estimates that 1,250 to 2,000 BB-61 examples exist, mostly through Very Fine. Extremely Fine and better examples are more difficult to obtain.
    The bright silvery surfaces of this Choice XF example display soft ice-blue color and a few dapples of brownish-gold on the obverse. The design elements are generally well-defined, including much of the eagle's plumage, which is usually weak. Both sides are devoid of mentionable marks.
